Tabula Rasa - Interview @ Killer Betties
Killer Betties has an interview with the Tabula Rasa team - let's take a snip from the beginning:
1. Tabula rasa refers to the thought that "human beings are born with no innate or built-in mental content, in a word, "blank", and that their entire resource of knowledge is built up gradually from their experiences and sensory perceptions of the outside world." How does the meaning of tabula rasa apply to the game?
In the game players actually have a Tabula Rasa, a “blank slate” that they use to record found logos knowledge. This allows them to create powerful logos abilities based on this found knowledge.
The idea is further explored in the game via ethical parables and choices players make that determine who the players turn out to be since every player begins basically the same. Other games have you make choices about skills or races before you know anything about how those choices will affect your game. Tabula Rasa gives you a chance to make informed choices about your character.
